"around the world" starts right now. -- captions by vitac -- a shoot-out at a kennal maul was more calculated than originally thought. kenyan intelligence say the terrorists rented a shop inside that mall a year ago. and a blockbuster report on climate change. this is a big one. waters and temperatures are rising and scientists say who's to blame? look in the mirror. plus, it's intended to protect people from radiation exposure. but a fence put around japan's
9:01 am
crippled fukushima plant now discovered it has a hole in it. i'm suzanne malveaux. >> i'm mike holmes. thanks for your company this friday. it is that week every year when most of the world's leaders converge on the united nations in new york, and as you know, the man who's gotten a whole lot of attention at this year's general assembly is the iranian president. spoke to reporters a few minutes ago. >> we're talking about ha sass rowhani of iran. his comments have, of course, made news around the globe, his comments about the holocaust, his attitudes towards the west. his country's nuclear ambitions and, of course, about syria. the new president making sure that nobody is confusing his message and where he's taking his country than from his predecessor mahmoud ahmadinejad. >> the president spoke a few minutes ago giving a news conference and spoking about
9:02 am
syria's alleged use of chemical weapons. >> we believe that the solution of the syrian crisis is a political one. we will believe that countries that have shaped the future of syria should actually walk hand in hand in order to put an end to the suffering of syrian people first and foremost. we believe that the application of chemical weapons in the region is extremely dangerous. we seriously condemn its use and we are glad that the syrian government has attempted to acceded to the convention on chemical weapons. >> all right. nick paton walsh is in new york covering all this for us. when it comes to hassan rowhani, when he met -- when his foreign minister met with the secretary of state john kerry yesterday, it was a historic moment.
9:03 am
but where do they go now? in terms of something tangible, concrete moves. >> that is what everybody's asking. even with rowhani's lengthy press conference still going on now, in can the fa, is he hasn't given up any particular technical detail which would be the concrete substance everybody is looking for behind the effusive positive activity we've seen in the last week. he repeated the healthy signals saying the handshake between him and barack obama didn't happen because he didn't have the enough time to prepare for it. the historic meeting between kerry and foreign minister, how that is didn't happen simply because they didn't have enough time to prepare for it. but the real issue at stake is what we're going to see in terms of moves by iran. they talked about three to six months, adjusted to a year by most officials we heard yesterday. we need to hear about potential inspections to see what the
9:04 am
backbone behind all that happy messaging as been so far. >> and nick, having covered many of these general assemblies, mahmoud ahmadinejad has always been the person who was the pariah of this world organization. now you have rowhani amazingly saying he's spoken to at least a dozen world leaders and says he ran out of time, only able to speak to cnn, pbs and "the washington post." the doll people really trust him that he is the real deal, that this is not simply a huge charm offensive? >> well, the real issue is what you make of him. there's no doubt the consistency of this message. it's been everywhere. but there are moments, if you look at that u.n. ga speech, that were parts of that which toned down and softened what we would have heard from ahmadinejad last year but represent nis" of it slightly condemning drone attacks on civilians, that was definitely a reference to u.s. foreign
9:05 am
policy. had there been a meeting hours earlier between him and obama, there would have been people in the white house wishing they hadn't made that will handshake happen perhaps. that will fuel those who suggest this is purely buying time. it's a charm offensive. at the end of the day, you can't fault the fact that the highest meeting if happened. they took the gamble. now we have to see if there's something on ground on paper that changes. >> nick, can't let you go without asking you about syria. i mean, dozens of people killed again on the ground with conventional weapons today. just outside damascus. what's happening with the resolution on that? where is that going? >> a deal seems to have been struck basically. we're waiting 0 hear from the u.n. monitoring group how they can implement what was agreed between john kerry and sergey lavrov. tonight at 8:00, everyone is expecting a text that's been agreed to be voted through the
9:06 am
council. it will probably pass without much problems. it won't have an automatic use of force if syria's considered to be in violation, there will stb some laing which will suggest the future. they will need another vote to the security council to decide what those measures are and that gives russia the veto again. we're back here all over again if the inspectors decide they're not happy with what syria is doing sis disarming is itself. >> the killings continue inside syria. nick paton walsh. >> it all depends on what happens in the ground. it's amazing what's happened in new york but what happens on the ground is going to turn this around. >> and up to 60 people killed today in one explosion. all right. let's move on. a new report from the united nations blaming climate change on us. >> the independent panel of scientists find that 95% certainty that humans, us, area responsible for at least half the climate change problems and we are talking about things like
9:07 am
rising ocean temperatures, crumbling the ice caps, want to get right down to it, brandon miller, meteorologist, break this down for us specifically. what kinds of problems are we talking about and what is the timetable to see some of the most serious destruction? >> well, this report from the intergovernmental panel on climate change is really looking through the end of this century. so really not that the far out. we're not talking hundreds or thousands of years. you're talking in people's lifetimes and our children's life times is what we're looking at. the biggest headline out of the report is it is extremely likely is the verbiage ha they use that humans caused most of this remain waing since 1950. at that point in time corresponds to a confidence level of 85%. now, that's up from the last report six years ago in 2007 where they said very likely. that was 90%. so we're getting close to in scientific terms being ascertain as we can be. they're not going to go much higher than 85%. if i told you there was a 95%
9:08 am
chance it was going to rain tomorrow, you would probably bring your umbrella. that's what we're talking about, among scientists, there's not much of a debate on climate change. there's certainly some debate about what impacts and where and how much and when. but when it comes to whether or not humans are responsible for a lot of this change we've already observed, that question has already been answered. now, sea level rise is one of those things that is a hotly debated topic and something that there's certainly a spread among models going forward, something the ipcc looked at was forcing these global climate models that look out dozens of years to hundreds of years into the future and project what the climate's going to be like. this blue line right here is a pretty optimistic look. that blue line represents lowering our carbon emissions by a pretty good amount through 2100. we're still looking at a sea level rice of hfl a meter. that's a foot and a half. if we don't cut back co2 levels,
9:09 am
we're talking double that. that makes a one in a 100 year storm more like one in 20-year storm. >> there's a couple of other reports are coming out on what happens next and what solutions might be in the works in the months ahead. brandon miller, thanks so much. and by the way, we've just gotten reaction from former vice president al gore on this report. now, he calls it "a milestone in the study of it climate change," and goes on to say the climate crisis is the greatest challenge humanity has ever faced from not only the warming of the earth with higher global temperatures but also from strengthening storms and expanding droughts to melting ice and rising seas. >> this was a guy who told us this a long time ago. warned us. we're getting new details on the deadly mall attack in kenya becoming clear that the terrorists began planning this brutal assault more than a year ago. >> unbelievable. >> that could explain why so
9:10 am
many people were killed in the westgate mall siege and how such heavy weaponry was apparently now already there. it arwa damon is in the city still reeling from the attack. tell us more about what you know about this store and the preparations that went into this. >> reporter: well, it most certainly seems as if this was not just a sophisticated attack but onen al shabab was planning on carrying out for some time. they had rented a store inside the mall itself which is raising a lot of questions whether or not they were able to bring weapons in well ahead of time. there is the sense that when the security at the mall gets comfortable with people, begins to get to know them, they become a bit lax when it comes to checking everything that is coming in and out. so it's raising a lot of questions at this stage. another update also is that the
9:11 am
kenyan authorities are saying they detained three skrilds at the kenyan ugandan border in connection with this attack. however, of the 11 people that were originally in custody, three of them have been released after questioning. there are forensic teams on the ground right now combing through the rubble, taking photographs, trying to fingerprint identify the bodies of not only attackers but any victims that may still be there. the red cross has not been allowed access to this. >> all right. arwa damon start offing to lose the shot from the nairobi. a terrifying thing they've been there a year. they had belt fed machine guns. you don't just walk in the front door with those. >> very much planned here. and also what's interesting is they still don't have a definitive death toll and know how many people were killed. confirmed 67 people were killed but still about 61 people still
9:12 am
missing, unaccounted for. we actually want to hear from some of the survivors in their own words. >> we were helping everyone who got like shot or something because they were all bleeding. so we had our aprons. we had to give it to them. so they'd like stop bleeding >> you can't sleep. you know, you just remember things and at least there was one point i just thought i had lost her. >> we have been -- since saturday. today although he was dead. >> so so sad. you know, authorities that are saying five of the terrorists involved in the attack were killed and as arwa was mentioning, there's still a lot of questions potentially who else was involved. >> and escaped perhaps in the melee as it was continuing to unfold. check this out. a greenpeace activist tried to get on board a russian oil rig and this is how they were greeted.

liberty mutual insurance -- responsibility. what's your policy? 9 environmental activist group greenpeace butting heads with the russian coast xwaurd, a-- guard and it got a little ugly. >> so this is what happened last week. it's playing out there. want you to just watch and listen here. we're getting new details what all this was about. this is way up. this is above the arctic circle at a russian oil drilling platform. now, greenpeace protesters were
9:17 am
motoring up to this platform, tried to climb up the side of the ropes. the russians responded with high pressure water hoses and gunfire. >> eventually, russian forces boarded and seized the greenpeace ship. it doesn't end there either. phil black is in moscow. a couple of dozen people were arrested and they're being charged. what happens now? >> reporter: well, michael, after the ship was boarded by the russian coast guard using ropes and helicopters, the vessel the arctic sunrise was towed to the city where the 30 people board that vessel has faced court. 22 of them have been remanded in custody for anything up to two months while a criminal investigation is carried out. the eight remaining will face court again in the next few days. it's probably they will face a similar ruling when they face court. again. so it appears they are all set for a lengthy court case -- a lengthy jail stay i should say
9:18 am
while investigators determine if there is a criminal case to answer. as i said, 30 of them from 1 different countries. >> phil, just look at these pictures. lots of questions when you look at this. why did they feel like they needed to fire on these folks in the first place? are they explaining why they think this was a threat of some sort? >> the russian view is yes, they believe they were dealing with a security threat of some sort. they didn't know the precisely what security threat they were dealing with. so vladimir putin, the russian president has said given the events in kenya, given they didn't know who these people were claiming to be greenpeace, he believes that the coast guard acted appropriately. the greenpeace view is that russia has overreacted at every stage and boarded their vessel illegally. all while greenpeace is known what it is doing around the world, that is climbing things they probably shouldn't to get media attention without posing any sort of security threat whatsoever.
9:19 am
they maintain the boarding was illegal because it took place in international waters. >> phil, just quickly, nobody was hurt, those bullets didn't hit anybody, did they? >>. >> reporter: that's correct. so while greenpeace says bullets were used at various stages throughout the confrontation, you saw the activists trying to scale the rig and later on they said they were fired across the bow of the arctic sunrise to try to drive them away. they said again when they were boarded by coast guard forces the crew was held at gunpoint. no one has been hurt. they're all in jail waiting to are their fate. >> and waiting perhaps for months too before it's wrapped up one way or the other. greenpeace saying that the drilling in that will sensitive part of the world is what they're protesting against, that it's not the place to have an oil are ig. >> dramatic pictures there. there's also a frantic rescue operation that's under way right now. this ises in mumbai, india. this is a five-story apartment building that has collapsed. you've got dozens of folks who
9:20 am
are believed to be actually buried in that rubble. if you think about it, it really is a race against time just to reach the potential survivors. the owner of the building says about 22 apartments were occupied on those upper floors. >> family members have gathered there hoping loved ones will be pulled from the rubble alive. the rescuers haven't brought in hev machinery yet. they're digging by hand and small tools because they don't want to upset what remains of the building. it's confirmed six people have been killed in the disaster but a lot of people are still missing and unaccounted for. this is outrage, too. guess what, this is the fifth building is collapse in india this year alone. >> i can imagine how angry that would make people. >> almost a common event in india. >> this is a japanese cargo ship after it smashes into another cargo ship earlier today. this is just south of tokyo. it tipped over. at least five members of that crew are reported killed. when we last heard the crews,
9:21 am
they were searching for a sixth crew mann still missing. maybe at the survived. it's hard to tell. nobody on board that other ship was actually hurt. it's not clear what caused the two vessels to collide in the first place. >> the nsa was tracking your phone records and e-mails. guess what, now we found out 1078 nsa employees were also using the technology to keep track of their lovers. okay, listen up! i'm re-workin' the menu. mayo? corn dogs?

welcome back, everyone. the nation's spy agency, you probably already knew could track your e-mails, your phone calls. well, guess what. now we're learning some of its employees are using their spying powers to snoop on their own lovers. well, that is the latest disturbing revelation about the misuse of authority at the national security agency. we're joined now from washington by evan perez. how widespread was what was really an abuse of power at the nsa? >> well, it is an abuse of
9:25 am
power. and you know, the good news here is that it appears to be pretty rare. we have about a dozen incidents over the past decade that the nsa's inspector gualenl a letter to chuck grassley of iowa detailed yesterday. and one of the things is, this basically relates to signals intelligence, the nsa's power to spy on targets overseas. and it appears what has happened is you have these employees who decided they were going to use it to snoop on girlfriends or husbands to try to figure out if they were cheating on them and so on. one employee, for instance, used it to spy on apparently nine girlfriends over the period of five years. so it is one of those things that us know, the strangeness of the incidents really is, you know, raises eyebrows, but it looks like the nsa systems are there to catch these relatively quickingly and these employees
9:26 am
are punished usually by being forced to resign or getting fired. >> you know, obviously it took awhile to catch him if it had been going on for a decade. what does it mean in terms of what these employees can do, what their access is, how broad it is and what's being done to keep an eye on who is getting spied on? >> reporter: that's one of the scary parts of this. the sa contractor edward snowden who has been revealing a lot of details about this one of the things he said is that the nsa employees can dip into this stuff whenever they want. so these revelations show that these employees, if they're not watched closely, can going in all kinds of directions looking into their husband's e-mails and phone numbers if they want to, and the systems have to be there to catch them when they do. >> evan perez in d.c., thanks so much. suzanne? >> possible government shutdown just a few days away. the senate is about to vote on a spending bill that funds the
